Abstract

This review summarizes recent advances conducted by our group on related silver complexes of (a) all-carbon ligands C62- and C82-, (b) 1,5-hexadiyne-1,6-diide C6H42-, (c) ethynediide C22- and ethynide R-C2- assembled with phosphonic acids, (d) aryl, alicyclic and heteroaromatic ethynides, and (e) ethynides that are stabilized by different types of silver⋯carbon binding interactions in the crystalline state, which are further consolidated by weak intra/intermolecular forces. The effects of the solvent, bulkiness of ligands and ancillary ligands on the construction of coordination networks are also discussed.
